Virgin Care has taken over Health Care services across Surrey; child care services in Devon and various other services across the country, does this mean that all the staff that were formerly NHS staff are now reclassified as private sector workers, working for Virgin Care?
Do these thousands of staff feature in the Government's and Office National Statistics claims that a record number of private sector jobs have been created to take the place of a fall in public sector jobs?
Remember this report from the Telegraph about Virgin care takeover of NHS healthcare on the very day the queen gave royal assent?
Even the doctors and nurses who work in Surrey’s hospitals and healthcare centres taken over by Virgin Care are no longer employed by the NHS and instead have had to become corporate lackeys. They had no choice: a Virgin Care spokesman confirmed to me that if they didn’t want to work for the company when it took over services from the NHS, their only option was to resign. The Telegraph - Healthy Competition in the NHS Is A Sick Joke
Proving that not only is competition in the NHS a "sick joke" so are today's claims about falling unemployment and the "rising" number of jobs created in the private sector. This example is not the only example we have of the Government misleading people over the public and private sector job losses and creation, they reclassified 200,000 public sector workers who were working in higher education as private sector workers, which gave the false and misleading impression that the private sector had created 200,000 more jobs than it actually had. All this lying over public and private sector, all this encouraging animosity and a rift between public and private sector workers, all this lying over "falling" unemployment, will only end in tears - ours.
The government are lying to us and they are manipulating and massaging the unemployment statistics. What a mess this Tory controlled government are making of this country, it's horrendous.
When is this government going to STOP deliberately misleading the public?
